Bitten Street, Oxford’s street food market twice named one of the country’s best street food markets, finished last September as Oxford Castle Quarter was taken over by the owners of the new Westgate. Luckily for us, they recognised a good thing when they saw it and have offered us the chance to return with an even bigger and better event.
We are hugely excited to announce Bitten Street’s return, kicking off on Saturday 5th May, then monthly on a permanent basis throughout the year, from 10am to 4pm on the first Saturday monthly. There will be three exceptions: this year’s June and August events will be on the second Saturday of the month to make way for Oxford Pride and some pre-booked holidays, and there will be no market in January – no one wants to do anything on the first Saturday in January!
We’ll still be doing the awesome street food and entertainment that we’re known for but expanding to include local crafts and produce. There will also be a free pitch available for community use at each event.
We want people to come, eat great food, pick up some fresh bread/cakes/local beers, find awesome locally made products for themselves or their friends, and enjoy the beautiful, historic surroundings. If you’ve been to one of our events, you’ll know our standards are high and we’ll be maintaining those standards for our new traders.
